Gore PharmBIO Opens Production Plant to Double Capacity

Enhanced cleanroom is key feature.

Gore PharmBIO Products opened a new manufacturing facility, which doubles its capacity. Located in Elkton, MD, the site will house a cleanroom that is designed to be more efficient and to improve process flow and segregation. The plant also features different pressure control zones and physical barriers minimizing product cross-contamination.

The cleanroom reportedly incorporates the latest technology in high-efficiency, low-power consumption fan filter units as well as air-handling equipment utilizing high-efficiency motors, drives, and control system features. The plant has also begun shipping products in a newly designed, fully recyclable secondary packaging.

“The new facility is another strategic component of Gore PharmBIO’s initiative to align with its customers and meet their global requirements,” says Jacques Rene, business leader. “We see this category as a great growth opportunity for Gore.”
